Bridgend is also known by its Welsh name Pen-y-bont ar Ogwr, and can be found a short 22 miles away from Cardiff in the County Borough of Bridgend. The town has grown quickly in recent years, and was previously a home to many traditional industrial activities like coal mining and the like which fuelled its growth in previous years. More recently Bridgend's economy has gone in a different direction, expanding into the fields of IT and biotechnology with considerable success, as well as many other fields which continue to fuel the town's growth and prosperity. The Princess of Wales Hospital provides a number of different treatments to the local community, of which fertility treatments is an important provision. The hospital offers intrauterine insemination (IUI) treatments to couples who can benefit from the treatment. Intrauterine insemination is normally preceded by a round of drug treatments which encourage female ovulation, preparing the body for the treatment and a successful conception. The treatment itself is quite straightforward, and will involve first taking a sperm sample from a male partner and inserting it into the uterus. From this position male sperm have a good chance of making it to and fertilising an egg, which would give a couple an opportunity to get pregnant if they have been struggling to conceive for some time. IUI is an extremely effective method in many instances, and can be a life changing option for many.
